Just to give some background on my history I have been an ATS user since 2005. I changed my profile recently due to personal reasons. In 2005 I knew
nothing of 2012 and I first came to ATS to look at UFO, ghost photo's and crypto threads. Well the hunt for information began once I stumbled on the
I became as thirsty for more information as anyone could possibly be and covered every available angle and/or situation that would lead up to a world
wide crises, as described by the numerous societies around the world. To be brief my ultimate conclusion on the subject, toward the end of 2009 was,
that this is either a psy-ops program or harmonic natural event that occurs regularly. We see seasons change on our planet 4 times a year, to me it is
not such a difficult stretch to see that there may be a galactic cycle with seasons changing every few thousand years, which are much harder to see
given the time frame.
Regardless, that is not the point of this thread.
I have taken certain precautions for myself and my family for just this type of event but this is not only limited to 2012 and also includes natural,
civil and threats of war. In short, I put my beliefs about this event like I treat most life issues. For example those of us that drive know we may
get into an accident so we get auto insurance. I refuse to get any more serious about this other then being able to relocate within an hours notice to
a safe place with people who live off the land. Which I have. All the talk about citizens across the world buying underground shelters, joining
communities, fortifying there homes, stocking up on food/water/weapons, seems like a great idea but I don't think it will work in the long run.
So, I really wasn't taking this too seriously outside the academic study of this phenomena.
Then last night I went out to dinner with my 4 year old daughter. We were early so we sat in the lounge and as fate would have it my daughter fell
asleep on my lap before dinner came. It was quiet and the only other two couples there were behind me, talking. They were all in their late 60's
70's and looked to be just regular folks. As I started to eavesdrop on their conversation it occurred to me they were poking fun at the May 21st
prophesy which failed. Then they turned their attention to 2012. Their collective understanding on the subject was pretty good - a history channel
synopsis would best describe it. I wanted to join in but didn't because I started to feel a strange anxiety come over me the more they talked about
it. Ultimately, after a 15 minute conversation about the whole event, these 4 people made a pact right there at the table to get together when things
start to get really bad and kill themselves, together. They even discussed using some type of medication or poison one of the women had left over from
work at the house, I think she was a retired veterinarian. They were as sincere as talking about the next vacation they were all going to go on. They
even worked out the details as far as food and wine were concerned.
Well, what these people spoke about has bothered me to my core since last night. It was interesting and fun to learn about this subject in the past
but now it has all changed. Whether or not anything is going to happen doesn't seem to matter to me anymore. I feel now just the injection of this
information into our society has already caused a change and the cycle must run its course now. Normal people are aware, even at some basic level and
are planning for some event to occur. Hysteria and the like will probably soon follow, only time will tell now. It seems this event is being taken way
more seriously then the other billion prophesies that have come and gone.
I really needed to let this out to see what the community here feels. And I did hesitate to write this, for now I feel compelled to enjoy my life
rather then looking at a computer screen anymore (No offense to ATS which I love).
Funny how information can be so destructive, a double edged sword, like all weapons. . . this one overheard discussion between 4 people has changed my
views so profoundly.
